    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   It’s been a long time coming, but we finally did it. For years I’ve wanted to update our stage lighting rig, but the funds have not been there.

    Everything about the British indie rock quartet ALT-J says “unique”—from their cryptic name (when typed on an Apple Mac OS X keyboard, it produces their trademark delta Δ symbol), to their seamless layering of multi musical genres.  It was ALT-J’s distinctive sound that got New York City lighting designer Jeremy Lechterman (JL Designs) “hell bent on finding the opportunity to design for them.” ALT-J was opening for another of Lechterman’s clients, Grouplove, on a tour last fall, so he pitched… View this post
